tiffin sambar recipe | hotel style idli sambar | hotel style sambar with step by step photo and video recipe. sambar recipes are one of the important condiments for south indians if not for the entire indian community. basically, there are myriad ways or types of sambar which are purpose-based and served differently for different meals. one such purpose based or multipurpose sambar is the tiffin sambar also known as idli sambar known for its flavour and distinct taste.

as i was explained earlier, sambar is a versatile recipe that is made and prepared with a purpose for it. this recipe of tiffin or idli sambar recipe is prepared mainly for south indian breakfast dishes. you may not use it for lunch and dinner with rice as it has a strong flavour that is not required for a simple meal. in other words, the breakfast based sambar contains an additional flavouring agent i.e garam masala. this not only makes it flavourful but also adds a new dimension to the sambar. in addition, the sambar masala is freshly prepared with a hint of coconut grate within it. this not also adds flavour and taste but also improves the consistency of the sambar. thus making it an ideal and a must required sambar recipe for most of the south indian breakfast recipes.

furthermore, some more additional tips, suggestions and variants to the hotel style idli sambar. firstly, the recipe is a mixed vegetable sambar with vegetables like potato, beans, carrots and onions in it. while the vegetables add a lot of flavour to it, there is no fixed set of vegetables to be added. you may any type or set of pattern to it as per your choice. secondly, the recipe is ideally served with a different kind of idli but not limited to it. i personally make it in large quantities and use it for pongal, dosa, upma and even deep-fried pakora or vada. lastly, the masala powder quantity i have prepared is specific to this sambar, but you may increase the proportion and prepare it in bulk. note that, the masala powder contains coconut, thus the shelf life is reduced due to its moisture, so plan it accordingly.
